Need Help Please! Cant Decide Between Two Names! Need Lots of Votes! :)

So, to make a long story short, me and my hubby were picking out names, and we cant decide between these two names for a girl. We have even asked a few close family members, but we still cant come up with a decision, so we want to see what one is more popular with votes, so we are trying to get as many votes as possible! :) Thank you!

I really like both though I voted for Ellie Mae cause I think it sounds really cute. I only know one Ellie who is older and one Brinley who is 3. They are both cute names.

I like Ellie! I was called Ellie when i was in middle school and part of high school until everyone got the pronunciation right that is was ELLE (( L ))! But i got used to it.
Did you know Ellie Mae was the name of the daughter on that show the hillbillies? lol. Its still cute tho! I like it better than Brinley.

I like the name ellie mae, it has cute ring to it. I like the name Brinley Marie as well, but like the first name the best.

As much as I love the ring to Ellie Mae, I can't help but associate the name with "The Beverly Hillbillies;" Jed Clampett's daughter's name was Elly May. A lot of people don't even know "The Beverly Hillbillies" anymore, though...it's a pretty old show.

Anyway, I also really like Brinley. It's very cute and very original. But I like the combination of Brinley Mae better than when it's used with Marie. ☺

yeah, i was gonna say Ellie Mae sounds kinda hillbilly (because of the show lol) Ellie is a cute name but maybe Ellie Marie....i still really like Brinley though, but im the same as Audrey...i like Brinley Mae.

Brinley is an awesome name and Ellie reminds me of the ladies in the nursing home.

i like Ellie. The name Brinley reminds me of a dog for some reason. I do like Ellie Marie more than Ellie Mae.

Thanks everyone! Who knew this could be such a tough choice! lol I love both names too :) And I think whatever name we choose will have my middle name marie :) But, I just wish I could get the hubby to love the name Brinley as much as I do lol I think he might be warming up to it tho :) I just love it because it is unique and I know nobody else would have that name in her class, but wow, I am really surprised that the names are pretty tied in votes! lol

Ellie Mae is cute but it immediately brings to mind The Beverly Hillbillies, atleast for me.  I voted for  Brinley Marie becuase it's not a common name and I can't think of any assocations that could be used to make fun of the name :)

I voted ellie mae.

however, the name carries a certain "stigma"  with it.  Trust me, as I am Cindy Lou.  I just use Cindy, but once people know my middle name is Lou, it is game on for all the hillbilly & Grinch jokes.  

I'm sure no matter what name we pick for our children, some kid is going to find a way to make fun of it.  My daughters name is Anna.  She actually thought her middle name was "bananna" until a few months ago.

I like the name Ellie.  It sounds sweet.  Brinley seems a little "trendy" for my taste.  I like the classic, yet less common names.
